Question about Computers & Internet
I didn't succeed to install a jetway graphic card HD3870.
I supress the old pilot whith windows and then stop the computer. Install the new graphic card and boot. In windows the screen is very strange due to poor color and definition level ( only 4 bit fo color and 400*600 for definition, and now way to improve it ). Neverthless, I install the new pilot and try to reboot the computer, but the boot fail after the "windows" screen and the computer start to reboot. During this second boot, I have a very strange boot screen, with a lot of white points included in the normal Asus screen. Then the boot fails again at the same time and start to reboot....
The only way to recovr the computer is to reinstall the old graphic card ( HD2400 ) , and then it's work perfectly.
I try it on my two computers, and it's the same.
motherboard: Asus P5KC, bios update 0804
memory: 4 x 1 Mo kingmax PC8500
HDD: seagate caviar 40 Go
graphic card that I try to install: Jetway X38XTEN512Q, n°7BC086T024484, based on HD3870 GPU.
Follow these steps:
Uninstall current graphics card drivers. Before you install your new card, you'll need to uninstall your current graphics card's drivers to avoid any potential conflicts. Right-click My Computer and select Properties. Under the Hardware tab, find the button to open the Device Manager. Your graphics card should be listed under the Display Adapter heading. Double-click the name of your graphics card to open a properties window for your current card. Last step: Under the Driver tab, click the Uninstall button.
Remove old card. Turn off your PC and unplug it from the wall. Open the case Make sure you first ground yourself by first touching a metal part of your PC case or by wearing an antistatic wrist strap. (Grounding yourself will prevent you from getting shocked and from unintentionally damaging your PC's components.) If you are replacing a graphics card, you'll need to remove a small screw attached to the back plate prior to taking out the card.
Install new card. It wouldn't hurt to page through your new card's instruction manual at this point. Then, take your new graphics card out of its foil wrapper and slide it into your motherboard's slot. Press down firmly with even force until it is securely in place (your system won't boot up unless the card is in all the way). Screw it into the back plate and close up your case.
Install new drivers. Turn on your PC and install the drivers. Windows XP should automatically recognize the new hardware and walk you through the installation wizard. If Windows doesn't detect the card, click Settings from the Start menu. Open the Control Panel and click Add Hardware. From there, a wizard will help you install the new drivers from the CD that came bundled with your new card. It's a good idea to check the graphic card vendor's Web site for more up-to-date drivers, just in case the vendor has released drivers since manufacturing your card. Once you've downloaded the drivers, simply restart your PC. Now, you're ready to start gaming.
If this doesnt work, then your card is BAD.
